I have a problem with - Olympus SP-510 UZ Digital Camera
I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera:
Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures.
It does take pictures despite this problem, but they are completely black.

Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

I almost always use ebay to purchase replacement parts like LCDs or other things. Just be smart when searching. Below is a link to the ebay listings for the part you require. Replacing the Screen is usually a little tricky, so take your time when taking the camera apart and make sure you keep all screws and have clean hands, and a clean workspace.
The SP-510 will not deface your pictures by scrawling numbers across them. However, the data is stored with every picture. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for the program.
If you print directly from the camera, refer to the instructions in the "Printing" section of the camera manual (page 46 in my copy).
Unfortunately this is a repair issue with the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss their repair policy and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.
Assuming your SP 550 UZ is similar to the 510 UZ "RAW Mode" is not available in "Auto" or any of the "Scene" modes. If you set your camera to "P" and then access the Image Quality item in the Menu RAW is available as an option.
Hope this helps.
